, it was for constitutional reasons. they did not realize that the commerce clause of the constitution was not very relevant. that is why this so difficult to get states to cooperate with the federal governnt. there was a gao study that found that come in fiscal year 2009, nine federal agencies spend $18 billion to administer 40 different training programs. almost all federal employment training programs, including those with broader missions, such as multi-purpose block grants, overlap with at least one other program and provided similar services to similar populations. so there is simply a lot of services provided and oftentimes not provided in a very coherent fashion, at least from my standpoint. i should make clear that there are a lot of people who have worked actively in the department of labour. i am not one of them. so i defer to the appeared to have a lot more information about the structure of these programs. from the standpoint of looking out, it does not seem like we have a very coherent program. the employment, security and -- program provide more extensive long-term employment training program

chamber of commerce. what is the message, good morning. >> apart from just jobs and the economy and it's laser like focus that the romney campaign has had in recent months. they are making the argument that there is so much upheaval around the world and domestically as well that the framework of the election needs to change from jobs and the economy to a change of president on all fronts. the romney campaign saying that president obama amounts to a status quo reee hreb. i re-election. if change matters to the american people they should vote for mitt romney. romney will point out that president obama promised to make immigration reform a priority and he will suggest that that is yet another example of a broken obama promise. mr. romney will also go on and detail a little bit about how he would reform immigration law and the hispanic vote is obviously incredibly important not only in california but across the country. mr. romney trails by a 3% margin. in that regard mr. romney is off the pace. it's generally accepted that a republican needs to get well over the mid 30s in order to be tr

people. when you go to kabul today, you see a city with electricity, with commerce, with cars, with movement, with women in school, and the average afghan doesn't want to go back to the taliban way of doing business where there is no music, there no interaction with each other, only on terms that they set for you. and so what you see on your television at night is a political struggle for the heart and soul of the middle east. this has been going on for a long time, and finally the lid blew. egypt was an authoritarian, corrupt dictatorship. tunisia, libya was ruled by qadhafi, syria by assad. and what you see is people who have seen another way of living are saying enough already. i'm not going to be part of that anymore. i'm going to try to change my life and my children's life. within that population, you also have people who are dead set on making sure that that nation and the islamic world goes backward, not forward, and we have to take sides. and if we don't take sides and we sit on the sidelines, we'll pay a price. i think it is better to help people fight the taliban th
